Whether you travel from the UK or anywhere else in the World, you will be faced with an impressive selection of accommodation on offer. There are two basic categories: private rentals and hotel accommodation.
Private rentals, be it apartments or holiday homes, are required to meet very high standards in terms of the facilities and the safety. They come as an exceptional value for money for the holiday maker. Besides, private owners are more likely to accept your reduced price offer then the hotel chain. Meanwhile, when deciding what offer to go with, in comparison with the asking price, knock it off 10-15% in the peak season and 20-25% out of the season. Simply, respond to the asking price by offering at least 15% less, in order to conclude the deal with the realistic 10% saving. In the current economic climate this formula has worked well for me.
Majority of holiday bookings are now done using secure internet payment systems. One can book their holiday directly with the apartment owner as securely as you would with a reputable travel agent. In Cyprus, Larnaca District is rapidly gaining in popularity. This is partly due to the new International airport, open recently, that brings most of the visitors into the country but largely due to the good long term planning that incorporates a spectrum of facilities offered to the guest, ie new golf courses, luxury spas, selection of water sports etc.
Oroklini village, located approximately 6 km from Larnaca town, is one of those charming villages that is highly popular with visitors, in particular with people coming from Europe. Unless you are after wild night life, which you will find in a nearby Ayia Napa or Larnaca town itself, Oroklini offers everything else. Friendly people, delicious food and all the essential amenities are there. There is a good selection of accommodation on offer: from small and compact studio and one bedroom apartments to numerous luxury villas. From Oroklini you are 5 minutes away from the nearest Blue Flag award winning beach and 15 minutes away from Larnaca International airport.
Cyprus is overall an expensive country, so the key thing to remember is: choose the suburb of the sea-side town or some of nearby magnificent villages as your base. Having benefits of the town at hand’s reach do not miss on the opportunity to mix with the locals and to enjoy their magnificent produce, including food at the fraction of the cost you would pay in the tourist hot-spots.
